2016. tracy: more than half. chris christie said no from the beginning. south carolina, louisiana, wiscons in said no. we will take matters into our own nds? >> governors like chris christie have big concerns how they may operate and the fed did not give all of the details on what they want them to be and standards. some governors held off for collison. >> part of the implementation is hhs wanted to wait until after the election and not wanting to politicize the.
but that eight away at the time it is available to implement. >> one of the things under obamacare is it can let the fed come in and set up then and set this thing up. decide to take it over some governors are not doing it because they oppose obamacare but others are concerned it is too risky them that the federal government ago first. tracy: you have a personal experience? >> i took a test drive. we had romneycare in massachusetts that set this up to be like the travelocity. it is fascinating. you put it in your age and

tracy: spend a. spend. spend part of the model of the admistration trillion dollar deficits the energy department announces $160 million plan to build more wind farms was bring in a senior fellow from the manhattan institute it is almost laughable britain said the offshore wind farm not produce as much as three thought. it is not even a good idea we still spend money. >> it is agreed example to show the wind industry is the most favored in america wis subsidies and mandates hang getting subsidies under
the national wildlife flawed no bearing more money at the offshore sector that would give expensive. tracy: the floating when the bill is out on the water somewhere slowly bringing power back? >> the important thing to realize what is the cost of electricity that may be generated offshore? look at the data it is clear. the cost of offshore wind is 2.5 times from the onshore wind turbine and five times as natural-gas. it will be extremely expensive if it is built. tracy: more money and not as much energy as we thought.
what is the rationale? [laughter] part of the obama administration push all of the above strategy does not matter if it works. we should have a diverse portfolio for those that are viable. the view is not winter solar but in the shale revolution the subsidies are 10 times greater. why we neglect oil and gas?
full-court press to get extended and and now the subsidize more than 20 years and then they could produce on their own without some cities thank you for being here. good times on a friday night. - big week forrganized labor a stunning defeat in michigan and the right to work a lot that part was look covered but was largely ignored was this. union members desperately a clinging to power violence
violence, assault and destruction of private property. will anybody be charged? why are some looking the other way? lou dobbs joins us tonight. this infuriates you? >> at the same time we should get used to the fact that daschle liberal media will make choices that are inexplicable other than their own by as. what we watched it was conservative comedian being punched and he shows that he could take a pretty good punch but cbs, nbc left this part of the story out and so it did abc referred to the violence without specificity. they also left out
democratic state representative got a little carried away and started to talk about the undue 100 years of labor progress quote-unquote there will be blood record jimmy hoffa said there will be a civil war. this is the language that would is used time and time again but completely ignored by cbs, abc, and nbc it is truly remarkable. tracy: the president backs them? he was a jury is lease finance in wisconsin and now front and center. the president considered to be part of the problem to
talk about right to work is not economics politics. he knows better than that. he knows we have seen in right to work states improving employment while the forest union states where they have to pay dues, unemployment is higher. that has escaped the attention of liberal news outlets. tracy: you will talk about this? >> absolutely. with the attorney general of south carolina. and also in the middle east dr. walid phares is who is the fox middle east news
